Patient : Hi there, i am 20 years old and have been o the depo provera for about 2.5 years now.. as a common side effect to the depo, i would spot or bleed alot during the last 2 weeks of each injection.. I have now been off the depo for 3 months and have been bleeding heavily the whole time, i have been feeling light headed alot, and nausious. I have been to the doctors about the continious bleeding, they said it was just a symptom to coming off the depo and to basically just sit it out, refusing to do any other test. i would like advice please.
